Clearly things are working with staff both front of house and behind the scenes passionate about delivering outstanding customer service and the experience we all expect. For us the Medici was a perfect stay. A location just a short walk... More

We stayed here while on vacation our first time in Italy. The grounds are absolutely zen and beautiful. The room was very clean and spacious. We stayed on the first floor. The other parts of the hotel are also super pretty. Would definitely recommend it for a stay in Florence. It is also close to everything.

The Hotel Orto De Medici is a great, centrally located, hotel if you're looking for an affordable hotel. It is very close to the train station as well as the famous sites in Florence. The hotel staff was great and the hotel grounds were wonderful.

Great place to stay for a weekend or a few nights. Was extremely hot, so the walk from Florence train station with luggage was tricky along narrow pavements. It is less than 2km from station, but takes along time when the roads are busy with other pedestrians. The hotel has great air conditioning for summer, friendly reception staff and good... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
